"In 1937 J.R.R Tolkien delivered The Hobbit and, after the publication of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Middle-Earth was born. More than seventy years later, Middle-Earth has been reinterpreted in every media type imaginable. From early PC releases (there was a version done in 1990 by Interplay), to the Super Nintendo, and to the next-generation console; its history has varied. Early games focused on the first book of the LotR trilogy, Fellowship of the ring. Since Peter Jackson's epic trilogy; however, there is more focus on the entire story. Early games utilized the RPG arch-type but more recent adaptations have exposed us to several RTS and action/adventure games. This leads us to the newest member of the LotR video game family: Lord of the Rings: Conquest."
